Artist Details

Congolese-Canadian artists Pierre Kwenders and Ngabonziza Kiroko of ABAKOS borrowed their name from the fraught political history of the Democratic Republic of Congo: An Abacost was originally the Mao-inspired suit which Mobutu Sese Seko made standard for the country in his efforts to counteract European influence in the 70’s
